This is one of two bedrooms on the ground floor of a three-family house equipped with a queen-sized bed. It would be very private as the owners live two floors above. Quiet neighborhood.
This is a bedroom in our 100 year old Victorian home in a remarkably quiet neighborhood. Long-term tenants just moved away. We're still acquiring furniture, but you will have a safe and comfortable place to stay. The bed is a comfy queen-sized bed. These homes were originally constructed as multi-family housing. There is sometimes a guest in the second bedroom. You would share the bathroom and kitchen. There is plenty of room to go around at 110 sq meters. This is a perfect location for someone traveling alone who will be busy with a conference or seminar. We get great feedback on the comfort of the mattress. We've slept on it and can assert that it's comfortable. Our location is very handy. We're a 6-7 minute walk from the subway (Central Square), a 5 minute walk to the bus on Mass Ave, a 5 minute walk to parts of MIT and a 15-20 minute walk to Harvard Square or to Boston in the other direction. We're also a 5 minute walk to Whole Foods or the same to Star Market in another direction. If you're a runner, there's a good 9-12k path from our house and around the river (we have a route map). For local cycling, a Hubway bike rental station is a 5 minute walk from the house. There is a driveway for your car also.
We're still equipping this kitchen after the recent move of long-term tenants. The basics are there. If you need more, we're happy to loan from upstairs.

We are a pair of classical musicians in Cambridge, located between MIT & Harvard. As with much of Cambridge, we're hopeless lefties.
On parle un peu de français. Hablamos poco español. Und ein bisschen Deutsch auch.
Most Sundays you'll find us "making a joyful noise" at one church or another.
We've been in this old house and this neighborhood over 20 years now. Since we cook a bit, the rental floor fridge and pantry might contain a little overflow from ours. We're huge fans of Airbnb both as guests and as hosts. Leave your towels and sheets at home; we provide all that for you. Our biggest challenge as Airbnb hosts is saying goodbye to the awesome people who stay with us.
